Hello everyone ! I’m still in the middle of exams but I thought i’d share another recipe with you. When I’m stressed I tend to eat more sweet things than usual (unfortunately) but after all, one piece of chocolate or cake once in a while won’t harm you 🙂
It’s been a while I haven’t made this chestnut-cream cake (called « Ardéchois » in french) and I thought it’d be a perfect recipe for winter (plus it’s super easy to make !)

You’ll need :
• 2 eggs
• 100 g sugar
• 100 g flour
• 100 g butter
• 200 g chestnut spread/cream (I used this one from Clement Faugier)
• 1 tablespoon baking powder
• 2 tablespoon of rum (optional)
• 1 pinch of salt

Preheat the oven at 180°C.
You’ll then have to mix the eggs with the sugar and the pinch of salt in a bowl. Then add in order the flour, the baking powder (mix mix) then the butter (preferably soft) and the chestnut cream (and finally the rum if you decided to put some).
Pour everything in a cake pan and leave in in the oven for 40mins (check with a knife if it’s cooked through)
And finally, enjoy with a cup of hot chocolate, or tea 😉

Take care !

Recipe – Egg muffin

IMG_0305

Good morning 🙂

Let’s start the week with another healthy recipe ! I’ve been on a low carb diet for a while now and I realized that I end up eating chicken for most of my lunches.. This recipe is super quick to make and is a nice alternative for a meal. Also, it’s a pretty versatile recipe since you can pretty much put whatever you’d like in it!

You’ll need :
– 4 eggs
– a pinch of salt and a bit of pepper
– vegetables (i decided to put some of those frozen mixed veggies & capsicum in it. But anything is fine : broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, etc)

You can add :
– feta cheese
– ham (I chose to put the leftover chicken I had)
– spinach
– etc….

Just mix everything together, put it in muffin forms and let it bake in the oven for about 15mins at 185°C.
And tadaaa, here you have a healthy lunch or even breakfast or snack 🙂
Enjoy & Take care,
xoxo,  S.

Capture d’écran 2014-11-20 à 14.23.52

I’ve discovered this recipe a while ago on Cassie’s blog, but I thought I’d share it with you ! It makes a wonderful breakfast or healthy snack, and it’s super easy to make.
You’ll need :
– 1/4 cup oatmeal
– 1/2 apple (chopped, I personally grate it)
– 1 whole egg
– 3 or 4 egg whites
– 1 scoop (=30gr) vanilla protein powder (I used my chocolate-hazelnut whey protein powder
– a bit of cinnamon

You’ll then just need to mix everything, pour some of it in a fry pan on medium heat and cook it on both sides until it gets slightly brown.
And it has just 342 calories, 39gr of proteins, 28gr of carbs and 7gr of fats.

Enjoy your meal 🙂 & Let me know how it turned out !
Now if you don’t mind, I’ll get back to my pancakes.
Take care.
